Inclusive growth is the growth that allows attracting most of labour resources to efficient economic activity and thus securing higher level of life for larger share of population. Special attention is paid to distribution aspects of wellbeing and growing anti-discrimination. People can benefit from economic growth as passive actors, not participating actively in the increase of income or GDP but only due to distribution policy. It is a common practice in most countries, not only poor and developing ones. In this case, to successfully implement the plan the economy should be not only sustainable, but also more inclusive and impartial, because availability of all types of resources is of the major importance in maintaining inclusive economic growth directed at improvement of human wellbeing.
